will tell you that the systems used by agencies are fine. the systems that trigger uses are fine and the budget is where the decisions are made anyway. the important data set that is used for oversight and -- by the government and public is not good enough to be used. there are efforts under way to correct the problem. it is a good example about how there it is a lot of excitement around, but the data has been unusable since the 1970's. the systems we use to track tax expenditures are worse. no one bothers to go back and check whether the estimates issued are correct after the numbers come in to the irs. the two systems used to track our never reconciled with one another. legislative information is still a rite of passage for technologists like myself. at this point, congress is making positive improvements but it is still difficult to work with. we never have access to the source data. we want the files that are the base line ingredients used to draft legislation. we can see them in the pdf's released but it cannot get the actual files. one more step back. i want

the situation in libya as "unique" and said the u.s. intervened militarily to prevent a humanitarian crisis. >> it's true that america cannot use our military wherever repression occurs. and given the costs and risks of intervention, we must always measure our interests against the need for action. but that cannot be an argument for never acting on behalf of what's right. of course, there is no question that libya and the world would be better off with gadhafi out of power. i along with many other world leaders have embraced that goal. and will actively pursue it through non-military means. but broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake. >> and to further that point on regime change, the president said "weapon went down that road in iraq." he also said that history is not on gadhafi's side. he says nato will assume full control of the libyan mission wednesday, and the u.s. will play a supporting role, reducing the risk and the cost of the operation. >>> the president's speech was not enough to satisfy some critics on capitol hill. house speaker john boehner

what deficit means. and most of all of us do. but sometimes we think it's some big words coming out of washington, not realizing what it really is. it means you're spending money you don't have. in fact, arguably every time you buy something with your credit card, you're deficit spending. you don't is -- don't have the cash in your pocket to buy the new television set so you put it on the credit card. you borrow the money you spend money that you don't have. now if we were like the great state of texas, where we have a balanced budget requirement in the constitution, in texas, then the texas legislature, they can't deficit spend. they can't spend money they don't have. they have a no deaf constituent -- no deficit spending rule in their constitution. you spend what the projected revenues are and that's it. sometimes it's real tough. to make things work. but you know what, they always somehow figure out a way to get it done this year is no exception. it's tough in texas. and they're doing the things we're trying to do here in this house. they're reducing their spending. as our state
